Staying up into the early hours, I saw the Salad Chef. It's pretty much a brightly-colored french fry slicer, with a grater and spinner included (am I the only person that just shakes greens, after rinsing them?). And, they showed how easy to was, to slice and dice food that was already rinsed, peeled, and cut into perfect proportions to fit it. So you have to get out a knife and cutting board, use them, then clean them, before using this contraption, for anything larger than a strawberry, and even for small items that need to be peeled.

In my experience a spinner is used mainly for leaves (lettuce, herbs etc.) which trap a lot of water.

Bubble gum used to be made from the sap of the chicle tree. I tasted it once, and it's horrible, but you can have natural bubble gum flavor.

If it means what it appears to mean, intensity of hair color is constant regardless of whether or how much you use the shampoo. Unless you use it too much, in which case it becomes less intense fairly steeply. The lack of labels on the axes just means we don't know how much that is.

I think the lack of quantity labels is what GhostWolfe was referring to. That steep drop off could be 1000 shampoos, or it could be 2. It could even be 1, your dye doesn't start to wash out until 3/4 of the way through your shower.

Haha, number of shampoos? So as long as you use the same shampoo, the color will remain forever?

Also, the quantity "Color Last" is an integral of "color intensity" over "number of shampoos?" Good to know.

This.

Understandably they can't actually give you quantitive values, lest they be sued, but that just makes their graph more douchey because they ]know that the graph is meaningless.

"Colour Last" is the name of the product.

Guys! It totally magnetizes your hair! Which is totally a thing you'd want to do! No, really! We totally used science, or something that kinda looks like it if you squint a lot, anyhow.

Driving to work this morning I was flipping through stations. There was a fairly annoying commercial on, with the Dj talking about how he bonded with someone over video games, sports, whatever, and brograms. It made me want to stab the bastard through my radio. I changed stations immediately, and still have no idea what the ad was for.
